Patient
female, 18 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    CT Scan (sagittal reconstruction – soft tissue setting)

    Mass located between the 5th and 6th rib, originating from the 5th rib

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT Scan (soft tissue setting)

    Mass originating from the costal cartilage with distinct mineralization.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MR T1W sagittal

    The mass shows a heterogeneous low to intermediate signal intensity on T1-weighted sequences.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    MR T2W axial

    The mass has a heterogeneous, predominantly high signal intensity on T2-weighted images and a fluid-fluid level on the posterior side (voided red arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    MR T2W axial fat-suppressed.

    The mass has a predominantly very high signal intensity on T2-weighted images with fat suppression.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    MR T1W axial after intravenous contrast administration

    Predominantly peripheral enhancement of the lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 7
    MR T1W sagittal after intravenous contrast administration

    Predominantly peripheral enhancement of the lesion.
